Will be great for the holidays. Dough comments...first of all use a stiffer dough. Store bought won't work. Before you cut, use either a little flour for gingerbread, or sprinkle on sugar for sugar cookies. Works fine.
One thing I would suggest it is 'fatten him up a little' by stretching out a little, and slowly, his back and stomach. Looks like a Reindeer when baked.
